Finnish modern metal band Resonance released a second single ‘The One‘ featuring Sara Strömmer. The track is taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Out of the Silence‘ which is set to be released on December 13th 2019 by Inverse Records.

The band comments:
The One’ presents a bit calmer side of the album. The atmospheric and melodic song didn’t take it’s final shape until it was recorded and edited. In fact it was almost left outside the record altogether. However, the song came really alive when we added the vocals, especially the wonderful voice of guest vocalist Sara Strömmer. The result was really something that we could be proud of.” 

Here´s what Sara has to say about the song: “The first time I heard the demo version of the song I got really excited about it. The theme of the song spoke to me and I had the freedom to make my own interpretation of it and so that made the song important to me also personally. The guys in the band have made really excellent work with this one”

Resonance‘s music is all about the brutal meeting of beautiful and technical melodies that are creating an unique approach to it. All four of the band members are experienced and hard-working musicians that have been associated with many bands and projects in the past. They all have different musical influences which is essential for the band’s unique and fresh sound.

Dare - Scared Ground

Fronted by singer songwriter Darren Wharton (who first rose to fame in the early eighties playing keyboards with legendary Irish rock band Thin Lizzy), Dare are one of the most respected and innovative melodic rock bands working today, gaining cult status among AOR fans throughout Europe, the UK and the world. The band’s debut 1989 album ‘Out Of The Silence’ recorded at Joni Mitchell’s Bel Air Studio Los Angeles, and produced by Nickelback  producer Mike Shipley is still widely regarded today as one of the all time great AOR albums.

Darren joined Philip Lynott’s  Thin Lizzy  at the tender age of eighteen and enjoyed 5 great years with the band touring extensively, alongside  renowned guitarist Scott Gorham, drummer Brian Downey, guitarists Snowy White (Pink Floyd),  Gary Moore and John Sykes (Whitesnake).  Working closely with Philip Lynott, Darren also recorded classic Thin Lizzy albums, such as ‘Chinatown’, ‘Renegade’, and ‘Thunder and Lightning’ on which Wharton co-wrote 3 songs, including the hit single ‘The Sun Goes Down’.  Sadly, the latter was to be Thin Lizzy’s last studio album, and in 1986 Darren Wharton returned to his home town of Manchester where, as an outlet for his creative flare for song writing and working with young Oldham guitarist Vinny Burns, he formed his own band, Dare.

Darren re-joined Thin Lizzy in 1994 and the band continues to tour extensively around the world to rapturous fans and huge audiences. The band recently completed a big tour of the USA with Judas Priest and recently supported Guns ‘n’ Roses in the UK as well as scores of major festival shows.

Wharton’s style of song writing, modern anthemic rock with Celtic overtones, coupled with the bands powerful live performances throughout Europe and the UK ( Sweden Rock,  BYH Festival Germany)  have gained Dare the reputation as a bright force on the British rock scene. Sacred Ground is the bands much awaited 7th studio album; a modern classic, original, yet instantly addictive. It features some of Wharton’s  most mature song writing to date.  Thought provoking and passionate….whilst still retaining a dark rock edge. As the band’s Worldwide fan base eagerly anticipate the new album, Sacred Ground is destined to be another classic album by AOR Rock legends Dare.
